    I'll post some pics of the mani in the morning when I get home...and I might do a drive by of the house with a camera....

    thinking about it...I could buy the house next to his, and live in it til he moves out, then rent that house, and buy his house....and have a sweet pad.

    Plus when I was in the back yard of his neighbors house...I was looking at the neighbors behind that house, and I saw a mint looking 280Z....


    man...I'm stoked.


    Oh...and I did buy some sctratch tickets on my way to work tonight...and guess what...the first $2 ticket I got was a $50 ticket....

    so me-$14=me+$56 in one night. ;)

    Bad fucking ass, man. Good luck in your adventures, but don't let the projects get out of hand. I've found that it's better to have one project completed than 5 in progress.

    This is the house that is being offered to me.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Completely Guttedover the last 5 years, and completely redone with a ton of custom woodwork inside and out, every peice of wood in/on/around the house has been milled, grooved, carved, or something done to it to keep it away from being bland wood.....Only Cedar on the outside, and a lot of cedar inside, the back deck is all cedar, and the swimming spa is surrounded in mohogani, and the temp garage has oak floors...

    I drove up there today to take some pictures and to show the wife...she liked it, but she said the house is to dark...I told her that the guy was pissedoff when the best wood staining company sold him the stain for the outside, and it went on to dark, and it didn't wash off...

    The white house next to it was bought a few years ago for $80,000...and the guy is selling it....with the hopes of getting 80K's back from it...it has possibilitiesas well...I can prolly get it and move in, and get the large down payment done, and get it cleaned up, and when march comes around, then I can buy the brown house, and rent the white one out....that's just an idea right now....

    [​IMG]

    But the wife fell in love with the empty house across the street from the brown house..so I'm going to try to find a way to contact the owner and see if he wants to sell it. He bought it for $120K's, and has only visited it 4 times in the last 4 years......

    [​IMG]


    But the sad thing..is that it is right off Rt 8, near the exit, and the road going past these houses are leading into a ghetto area up the road...so the car noise might be too much for me and the wife...


    So we will keep looking around for more house...but I personally like the broun cedar house...when I get a chance to go inside again, I'll take my camera :)

    Those are some good prices on houses. CT has some shitty prices on houses right now, unless you find a good deal. Thats why I bought a condo.
